Hello all!

Recommended Posts

Hi!

I've ben fascinated by space and everything that goes with it all my life. 

Now I have decided to become a stargazer and have bought a cheap secondhand 700/76 scope. 

No doubt that it's a poor and wobly scope BUT still it has already brought me my first clear view of the Moon and a wobly but cool jupiter experience. 

I'm looking forward to draw on The massive experience and knowledge in here 🤓😀

Hi - 

I had a similar 'scope last year and it got me off to a good start.  Easy to aim and use, and giving good results with the Moon, Jupiter, Saturn, Venus, double stars, M42, etc..

Have fun!

Doug.

Hi and welcome to the lounge ,your scope will get you going and show you things you have never seen before it's a great start point ,and it's better to start the way you have  ,because if you decide it's not for you ,you have lost nothing
